Head Football Coach Massey possibly being fired?

ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?!?!? I remember back in the good ole days when you would try out for a team. You either made it or you didn't, depending on your skills and ability. Those kids then, are not locked up in a padded room, in a straight jacket because of it. God gives each of us certain abilities and strengths. Sports isn't for everyone and may not be for your child. Are you trying to live vicariously through your children? The coaches are not going to play your kid, unless they are playing no name teams, that are absolutely horrible...then maybe the benchwarmer will play a couple of plays. Coaches work so many hours and are away from their family's for months. I am a coaches wife and I can tell you so much political crap that goes on within the athletic departments of school districts that would tick everyone of you off. Parent's, get a dang grip. Let the coaches coach and you stick to parenting your child. If you don't like the coach, try another school. Someone will eventually take your kid. You can't coach the uncoachable.  (Dec 14, 2010 | post #439)

Suicide

This is a tragic time for many in the city. I pray that family and friends will take this experience and do something positive with it. Teens go through many emotions when dealing with life/reality and they are not sure how to deal with it. They feel that there isn't anyone to talk to or no where to go, except for "friends ". Sometimes, they need mom and dad to be there for them, but many parents get caught up with their busy schedule that they assume life is cool with their teen. Teens hide feelings and emotions and it is hard for many to express it. Samantha had so much going for her, but struggled in dealing with it. Regardless of how she died, the fact remains, let her be a shining light for your life. Parents, talk to your teens. Get to know them. They aren't the same innocent babies that you had 13-19 years ago. Teens, make your parents take time for YOU. Not your brother or sister, but let others in your life and rely on your parents. Some, parents are caught up with work, cooking, cleaning, taking care of younger siblings, that you feel you are thrown to the side or pushed back. Trust me, that is NOT the case. You want to be independent and your parents are trying to allow that. Maybe they give you too much independence. Go to them for whatever is going on. Talk to them about the good and/or the bad in your life. Parents, don't judge!!! You were there. Give your kids that listening ear and that alone can help your child cope with life. Wrap your arms around one another, with love and compassion. God, I pray for the family of Samantha. Wrap your loving arms around them and comfort them. Give them the spirit to move on and honor their daughter, grand-daughter, niece, cousin, etc... Life is about ups and downs. Many are harder than others. What matters is how we deal with it. God bless you all.  (Dec 14, 2010 | post #16)
